Trading automatically for abnormal returns

Share this blog

Welcome to DIY Quant Fund blog


Hello, I am Chris. Most people know me as diyquant. I perform automatic trading using quantitative analysis mostly in the realm of momentum strategy. I am an advocate of automated trading. Main reasons are it helps to give investors an edge by removing emotions from the market and its ability to backtest gives investors more confidence in their strategies.

Check out my strategy here

I present a very different style of trading that derives trading decisions based on computational science and big data analysis. I believe this is giving me an edge in the market and the result so far confirms it. My ultimate (super long term) aim is to turn this into a quant fund. Here is my system's current performance.
